About

Chicago, 1963 / Printed 2009 Gelatin silver print (Edition of 100 + 5 APs) Signed and numbered by the artist 11 x 14 inches, sheet size 9 x 9 inches, image size This artwork is offered by ClampArt, located in New York City. In 1963, Danny Lyon spent time in a poor white area of Chicago called Uptown. Nicknamed ‘hillbilly heaven’, it was a very tough and deprived neighborhood. With a borrowed Rolleiflex camera, he followed the inhabitants of Clifton Street, where he befriended the families who lived there, documenting intimate moments both inside their homes and on the street. “Three Young Men” captures three men who had moved to the Uptown area from the deep South, posing against a concrete wall tagged by chalk graffiti. Their tough stance and rebellious manner is tempered by a sense of youthful vulnerability. Danny Lyon was born in 1942 in Brooklyn, New York, and raised in Kew Gardens, Queens. He studied history at the University of Chicago, and graduated with a B.A. in 1963. Lyon is best-known for his images of the Civil Rights Movement, outlaw motorcyclists, and prisoners in Texas penitentiaries. Lyon received the Guggenheim Foundation Fellowship for photography in 1969, and for film making in 1979.
